In the book The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom, the reader journeys through the events that unfolded during the holocaust from the perspective of a Catholic. Corrie Ten Boom may not have fallen victim to the Germans, but she certainly didn 't agree with how the Germans were treating the Jews. Despite it being against the law, the Ten Boom family decided to lie in order to maintain the Jews safety. In this case it is simply to lie in because they are lying for the greater good of saving lives. When people make decisions they weigh the pros and cons, so when it came to the time where Corrie made her decision, she knew the good most definitely outweighed the evil.
Though overall these young women have an array of reasons, from adulterous revenge to the basic overall concept of the book, being scapegoating.

Though it could also be argued the person themselves have alternative motives, such as not wanting to be seen as a bad friend or person. While these actions are more or less admirable, it is still nevertheless lying. While Donald Trump's motive for using artifice, is simple, he wants the population to like him and believe he is a good president.
The irony of this situation rests in the fact that most of the laws, based on the Bible, of Gilead were enforced in order “to protect women,” yet Offred is not being “protected” due to her fear that the Commander might expel her if she does not sleep with him. “He is not a monster, I think” (Atwood 255). Offred is not trying to think of the Commander in a negative light. She would like to think that he is still a good man. It is the preposterous ruling of the society that has led him to this.
When Macbeth achieved the position as a king in such random matter and surprisingly for both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, the lack of preparations not just physically, but mentally has very big consequences. Lady Macbeth wanted to be queen and was willing to do anything for it. Violence was an easy option, but she does not expect that she had to live with the guilt. She saw her chance to become queen and took it no matter what. Greedy as she is, she sold her soul to the devil.
Although Macbeth has done some really bad deeds, he cannot be called a bad person out and out who goes on to achieve his ambitions without any consideration. He’s also a victim of the realization that there is no meaning as such in this world. This instability snatches his power to think and he gives in to his wife’s provoking speeches without providing any counter arguments to her. If he had any of his individuality left, he certainly must have had given some thought to her speeches but the lack of it shows his confusion. As soon as he joins the opposites foul and fair, he’s encountered by the weird (which is undefined because in the world of Macbeth nothing is normal).

The main one being that the wife should have defied the law in the first place because it was morally wrong at the time. They believe that she should have never reported him in the first place and therefore should be punished for not going against a morally unjust law. Other arguments that could be made by natural law theorists could be that it is morally wrong to incriminate other people in the past who broke the confidentiality of a conversation between husband and wife. It also opens the issue of a spouse turning in their spouse for altruistic reasons or because they committed a legitimate crime could have the crime invalidated in the eyes of the law. This opens up a can of worms that could lead to a retroactive law causing more damage than it would be
Patria's marriage is the best example of a healthy, happy, and successful marriage in Alvarez’s book. The reader learns very quickly that Patria is very religious, “[she] felt it, snug inside [her] heart… no one had to tell [her] to believe in God…[She] did it automatically” (Alvarez, 44).
